a little bit of confidence goes a long way...

"We are all of us stars, and we deserve to twinkle."

 "its better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what your not"

"Keep smiling, because life is a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about."

i was recently inspired by a marilyn monroe post from the wonderful and oh so lovely amy of a daring little life and i wanted to share a little bit of love for miss monroe as well.

i am so inspired by the amount of confidence that this woman had.  the words she spoke were so honest and personal.  she held nothing back and told it like it was without worrying about the consequences. 

i truly believe that even just a little bit of confidence goes a long way.  this is why i have learned to love myself...love myself for everything that i am and everything that i can be.  this is me, this is my life...take it or leave it.

love yourself first, if you don't no one else will have the opportunity!

so to all of my lovelies out there...take the time to love yourself today, because once you do your confidence will shine for all the world to see.
